VIRIYAPORN BOONPRASERT VS. EDOUARD MANET
I just noticed that Viriyaporn Boonprasert made the film DEVELOP BLESSING GIANT DHAMMA IN 3 WORLDS: THE OPENING SCENE (2012, 10.46 min, A+) as a tribute to the painting A BAR AT THE FOLIES-BERGÈRE (1882, Édouard Manet). The film depicts the screening room in which the film is shown, acting like a mirror in Manet's painting. In a way, THE OPENING SCENE is like PHENOMENON (1) (2012, Teeranit Siangsanoh, 28.32min, A+30) and RESISTANT POEM (2008, Prap Boonpan, 20min, A+30), which also depict the screening room of the films.
